Ubisoft dropped a brief tease for the oft-rumoured sequel to 2014’s hack-and-thrash game Watch Dogs, earlier today. The 30-second clip, titled Hello World, features what looks to be a whole new protagonist, untucked shirt ‘n all.

Kotaku’s Jason Schreier reported earlier this year that Watch Dogs 2 would be set in San Francisco—quite the departure from the original entry’s depiction of Chicago.

Newcastle-based Ubisoft Reflections—a co-developer on the original Watch Dogs—tweeted the video out shortly afterwards, adding that fans can expect a full reveal this Wednesday at 5pm, mere days ahead of Ubisoft’s Aisha Tyler’s press conference at E3 next week.

With San Francisco being the home of Silicon Valley—and most of our data—this may be shaping up to be a wild ride indeed.
